ary Elizabeth Williams’ Pickwick cabin is not only a beloved multigenerational family retreat; it also holds the distinction of being the only residence in Mississippi decorated by lauded New York City designer Meg Braff, who also happens to be Williams’ daughter. Even though the makeover happened more than a decade ago, the decor remains a testament to the Tupelo native’s talent. The home also provides a glimpse into the beginnings of Braff’s signature style. “I’m glad we caught her then because I have a feeling she wouldn’t have time now,” Williams said, laughing. “It’s something to think that one of our daughter’s first big jobs was the cabin that my husband’s mom built back in the ’60s, especially with all she’s accomplished since.” Success has made Williams’ daughter a hard designer to book since she finished that initial project for her mom straight out of design school. Meg Braff, pictured below, designed the interiors for her mother’s Pickwick cabin (this page). One of her earliest projects, it reflects the style for which she is now known.
